"The Age of Descartes" is a book series devoted to Descartes, Cartesianism, and seventeenth-century philosophy, which aims to cover this crucial stage in the History of Philosophy as fully as possible. In order to do so, the series seeks (a) also to include studies on scientific topics (including mathematical ones), rather than focusing exclusively on metaphysical and epistemological themes, and (b) to approach Cartesian and seventeenth-century philosophy both from the point of view of the History of Philosophy and from a more technical philosophical perspective, without prioritising either of both perspectives. The main languages of the series are English and French.
